BlogHer? La La La La La I Can’t Hear You!


Don’t mind me! I’m just hurriedly preparing for all the other things I’ll be doing this weekend instead of BlogHer.



I’ve got BlogHerNot 2008: The Revolution, and BitchHer 2008: The Devolution, and all kinds of things in between. Like shopping for a bathing suit that is not Gap, circa 1995 (the last time I bought a bathing suit suitable for public consumption.) (My tulips, I am not even kidding.)


So, so many things going on. I must hurry. I do not have a moment to spare. I cannot stop and smell the espresso. (That photo above is a fictional rendering of what I would be doing if I had any time.)


Also, that’s pretend SlimFast in there. I’m praying the Gap suit still fits.

    I thought I was the only one who hadn’t bought a swimsuit in a decade. Mine’s an ugly Speedo though. Ugh.

    Now go to my latest post and LINK THIS for all the BlogHerNotters to see.

    SOMEONE has to set an example. Criminey.

  2. Kizz says:

    I bought a swimsuit less than a decade ago but I never took the tags off and I have no idea where it is now.

    I am also not going (*SOB*) to blogher either. Keep me company?

  3. Good to know I’m not the only one too busy this weekend to go to that little conference thing.

  4. Vered says:

    I wish you were going. It would have been fun to meet you in person.


  5. Da Goddess says:

    I’m not going. I wasn’t even invited. Well intercourse them!

    Now, about babing suits (that’s what my daughter used to call them) — if this tub o’ lard can have two (yes, TWO…1..2…uno…dos) suits, anyone can. And I’m a bitch to fit. As well as being a bitch in general. So no more excuses from any of you.

    If you don’t want to spend a upwards of $50 to $80 for a swimsuit Target has some really nice ones. You have to weed through the racks to find the right sizes for top and bottom (sold separately) and sometimes you’ll find a top you love but then not be able to find a matching bottom. Of course there is also the chance that you’ll show up and the pool or beach and see two or three other people with the same suit but if you want frugality over fashion statement then it can’t be beat.

  7. Too good ! ehubby wanted me to buy a suit before I came on this trip. He said I’d need to spend time by the pool. Uh no. I haven’t owned a swim suit since pre-prego days and that was 1981. So um, if my lilly white flesh were to get near the sun, I’d fry!

    Blog wha? I can’t even seem to manage to make it out of San Diego this summer.

    And I have two lovely Ann Taylor bathing suits. That nobody will ever see (and thank God for that) because I always wear a gigundus cover up even in the pool. Oh yes I do.

  9. Steph says:

    I WANNA COME TO BitchHer!! :weeps copiously:

    Also? Get a frickin’ fwimsoup already, Deb. Great googly moogly, even my fat butt has a suit newer than yours. lol

    i buckled down and bought 3 of the coolest speedos online just the other day so i can be a better, more involved mom at the Y. i’m hopeful they’ll cover all the right spots, and reveal the other right spots (which are few). but i’d rather be at blogher.

  11. Jill says:

    I’m so sad I’m not going either… serious boo hoo!

    Let me know where you get this miraculous bathing suit… I can’t seem to find one that has enough support for the twins!

  12. kate says:

    what? we’re not skinny dipping?

  13. I’m sure you’ll look fab. Or, more accurately, bitchin’!

  14. pajama momma says:

    But you look so cool drinking your coffee, isn’t that what really matters?

  15. Lisa Milton says:

    I’m still laughing at Kate’s comment. Swimming suit shopping sucks; been there today.

    But. I found something I can live with and really, that’s all I want.

    (And world peace.)

  16. foolery says:

    Drawer full of swimming suits, all of them hideous, all of them old, all of them impossibly gigantic, none of them flattering.

    I’m sorry, but BitchHer knocked me out. Why haven’t I been reading your site every day? Oh yeah — I iz DEEvolvedid.

    Good luck suit shopping!

    MP: Speedo is my brand of choice. It sucks stuff in, right?

    Kizz: Of course! Come on over! Or I could go by you?

    Mel: See you tomorrow!

    Vered: Back at you.

    DaG: Will you go babing suit shopping with me?

    Candice: How about frugal and fashionable? I guess Target has that niche pretty much nailed.

    Deb: Really? My bathing suit is 14 years younger than yours?

    Amy: I used to wear my dad’s t-shirts (as a cover-up) in the pool…and if I still had one, I would again.

    Steph: Thank you, Font, I will.

    Myra: I’ve seen your pic! You’ve got more spots to reveal than to hide!

    Jill: Word that.

    Kate: I will if you will.

    Jenn: You’ll see, you’ll see. Just remember: NO SWIM SUIT PICS TOMORROW!

    PJ: I like to think so.

    Lisa: Living with it is the best I can do, too.And I’m with you on the world peace.

    Laurie: SEND ME YOUR GIGANTIC SUITS! You’re not using them, right?

  18. Auds says:

    Word! on the swimsuit thing.

    I wish I could come up with something witty to say. Besides being hungover from all those swell Bloghernot meet and greet parties, I’ve just suffered a most tragic accident…I stepped on a Lego barefoot.

    Send help. Or at least Vodka.

  19. Green Girl says:

    Oh, if that swimsuit doesn’t fit, just drag out the Budweiser one you bought in college because you thought wearing a beer logo made you look SO cool. And remember to shave every inch of your nether regions before trying it on.

  20. Da Goddess says:

    Deb, were there enough time, hell yeah, I’d go babing suit shopping with you! If you can make it through today without something and want to go on an excursion, let me know. You bring the girls, I’ll bring Little Dude, and we’ll tear up the town.

  21. Di says:

    Public consumption? Is it edible? And if so, why has it not been consumed already???

    Edible bathing suits…I think that should be the new little black dress of BHN08.
